Feels like an echo of "T2," doing many of the same things and offering similar narrative perturbations but without the verve of the earlier movie.

A respectable afterthought sequel that is paradoxically welcome and unnecessary.
More like the dramatization of an Encyclopedia Britannica entry than a fully rendered movie, "Tolkien" loses sight of the character.
The framing of characters is black-and-white and the far-too-pat ending offers an unearned resolution.
An unconventional heist film in which a majority of the action occurs after the loot has been liberated, it features well-staged action scenes that ooze tension.
